A 10-year-old girl fighting cancer will soon get to do something other girls could only dream about.
Skye Tucker showed up at Macy's in Charleston on Friday morning only to be surprised by several employees waiting to take her around on a free shopping spree before she meets teen singing sensation Justin Bieber.
Make A Wish partnered with Macy's to make this happen.
Skye was diagnosed with leukemia five years ago, and her parents said her last few visits to the doctor have been positive.
The girl's only wish was to go to New York City to see a Broadway show and to meet Bieber. Skye's parents said this is truly a dream come true for their daughter. "She never asks for anything. And like we were saying earlier, she'll probably look at the clearance racks because she's just that type of kid. She doesn't want for anything; she wants for everybody else," said Skye's mom, Melanie Tucker.
The Tucker family hopes to take the New York trip sometime in May.
